Good Morning; If you follow this blog, you know I have had constant stress this year so far. Another back surgery for my DS in January, MIL severe health issues, DD a severe pregnancy problems- DS going through withdrawal from pain meds that doctors gave him during his recovery from two back surgeries. I have been the main care taker for all these situations and it is not even June 1. My secret of my strength is my high power through Overeaters Anonymous. This program I have taken advantage of and taken for granted to be there for me. It has for nearly 40 years. I have not always followed it but I am back this year. I hit rock bottom and had to surrender to my high power bc I needed support and no person could fulfill my needs bc of so much stress fatigue. I asked for help and it was there. I am not bragging or telling any one to get some kind of glory bc my journey is still going but I am not stressed like I was and burdened. I used to rely on my family and others but they are not always there when needed. I had to reach future to my higher power and this has taken away my resentment.
I am back home and will get back on my routine. Right now I am listening to a phone meeting and it is very calming. Overeaters Anonymous offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating. For today I am calm and at peace.
Have a good day. I use this blog, OA phone meeting and literature or I would have been buried from all the stress this year.
Every one has to find a way to succeed. I knew all the stress was killing me but it would not let up so I had to surrender to my higher power for relief. I did not do it alone. Have a good day!! I feel great and peaceful. I wrote this today bc people are praising me for being strong. I am strong but it bc I asked for help. I am handling things one day at a time. What a change bc I was drowning with the burden of all this stress. Get some movement in this weekend!!
